Client Testimonials 

"My wife and I were helping her sister move to Bozeman and contacted Tricia from 45th Parallel Realty. We were very impressed with Tricia from the moment we met her. She was excellent at communicating with us to understand exactly what we were looking for and what our expectations were.Tricia showed us several properties and patiently asked questions to help us find the perfect home. Being new to Bozeman, Tricia was invaluable with recommending home inspection and mortgage companies as well as ensuring we were well informed with real estate laws specific to MT. Living in different states made contract negotiations and paperwork more complicated, but Tricia constantly kept us informed and helped walk us through the entire process. We will not hesitate to rely on Tricia for any future real estate needs." -- Bill Sebastian

"It is evident that Tricia Bailey has been a long-time experienced REALTOR®. Her expertise in the selling of our home and the purchase of a newer home for us was invaluable. Tricia is a true professional dealing with the various aspects of the real estate transactions. She displayed a consistency in completing all the paperwork and other matters regarding the purchase and sale of the properties. Tricia is fair and honest and has a wealth of knowledge regarding real estate. She gave us great advice, which we so appreciated. Tricia kept us well informed during the total process so we were constantly aware of the property status. We would highly recommend Tricia Bailey for anyone's real estate agent." -- Dean and Muriel Mikkelson

"You make it easy, and you bring the business AND the personal support both when they are needed most. I am so grateful for your guidance and expertise!You know your stuff!" -- Becky Michaels

"Thank you so much for working with my family to help my Aunt find a home! I feel like you really went above and beyond, and I appreciate that so much! I know everyone is happy about the house and excited to enjoy time there." -- Jasmine Sebastian

"I was referred to Tricia by a good friend when I was ready to purchase a house. Tricia reached out to me right away to get an idea of timeline, budget, what I wanted and started looking for me right away. I was a little nervous, as I knew it would be a few months before I was ready to close, but she explained everything about starting to look to see what I liked and maybe I could build, etc. Off we went. She was tireless, energetic, fun and saw things that I didn't when I needed to. She successfully got me out of a build-to-suit situation with a very badly behaved builder. Even though she knew I was disappointed in not being able to build that dream home, she got me back up on that horse and out we went again - and that day I found the very house that has now become my forever home. I am pretty high strung, and I cannot imagine having tried to get through the experience of buying a house without Tricia Bailey! I will recommend her to anyone I know who's looking to buy or sell, and if in the future I am in the market again, she will be the one I go to! Thank you Tricia for everything you did for me and all the support and help you were. Can't wait for you to see how it looks now!" -- Marie Lockhart

"Working with Tricia was very enjoyable. Because we live far from Bozeman, we relied on her for updates, help with coordinating showings with our property manager and renters, and all the large and small details we couldn't address.

She was incredibly helpful with all of the 'moving to a new area' details and closing details. Thank you, Tricia!" -- Ron and Barb Adlington

She worked very hard for us, and we are very grateful." -- Ken and Kathy Robertson
